My First Mother's Day (Picture Heavy!)

My first Mother's Day was a wonderful day. I felt loved by Meredith. I felt pampered and cared for by Chris. I enjoyed (way too much) delicious food. I basked in the perfect weather.

I thought a lot about how hard, yet, rewarding, these past 10 months of mothering have been. To be completely honest, I felt proud of myself. Proud of enduring countless sleepless nights and hours of crying that would never end. Proud of the boogers I've wiped, diapers I've changed, games I've played, books I've read. Proud to be a mama to my favorite little girl in the world. I love being a mom and I love that there is a day celebrating mothers of the world.

Beautiful pics Claire!! I'm so with you on the feelings of first time mommy-hood. I can't believe how quickly the 11 months with my little lady have gone. I feel like I can't even find the right words to express it. Glad you enjoyed your first Mother's Day!! OXO Nat
